If any jazz fans were curious about the level of impact Art Blakey and his Jazz Messengers had during 1965, then they should listen to this album. “‘S Make It” which stands for “Let’s make it” was recorded in 1964 and released in 1965. The messenger band members that were with him from 1961 to 1964 (Wayne Shorter, Freddie Hubbard and Cedar Walton) had left. Art picked up some familiar musicians that worked with him in the past and added a legend tenor saxophonist and recorded this beauty. Who were they? Well, on trumpet it was Lee Morgan, on trombone it was Curtis Fuller, the Pianist was John Hicks, Victor Sproles on bass and the new addition on tenor was the one and only John Gilmore! Another classic from Blakey and with that soulful modern mid-60’s sound, sweet stuff!

About the album:

Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers: John Gilmore (tenor saxophone); Lee Morgan (trumpet); Curtis Fuller (trombone); John Hicks (piano); Victor Sproles (bass instrument); Art Blakey (drums). Drummer and bandleader Art Blakey was a leading practitioner of hard bop, a sub-genre of bebop that emphasized the blues and hard-swinging, usually mid-tempo, grooves. This 1964 session presents classic performances by one of Blakey’s most accomplished Jazz Messengers line-ups. (The personnel changed often over the years.) Inspired solos are heard here by legends in their own right, including trumpeter Lee Morgan, trombonist Curtis Fuller, and pianist John Hicks.…….Read More

The focus on the best jazz music ever recorded, combined with the depth of artists and tracks played. I have heard so many tracks that I have never heard before, it’s mind blowing what Jazz Con Class Radio plays that other stations don’t. Mr. Reyes, your station is a national artistic treasure!"
